Work on new North Wales Maggie’s Centre to start

Maggie’s, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and the Steve Morgan Foundation are delighted to announce work is starting on the construction of cancer support centre Maggie’s in North Wales.

The new centre has been designed, commissioned and funded by the Steve Morgan Foundation and is planned to open in 2025.

Located in the grounds of Glan Clwyd Hospital in Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire, the centre’s expert staff will support people living with cancer, as well as family and friends, from across the whole region – including Bangor and Wrexham.

The North Wales NHS Cancer Centre at Ysbyty Glan Clywd sees approximately 5,000 people newly diagnosed with cancer every year.

Dame Laura Lee, Chief Executive at Maggie’s said:

“We are delighted to be starting work on our centre in North Wales.

“Without the Steve Morgan Foundation’s incredibly generous support we wouldn’t have been able to bring Maggie’s to North Wales and for that I am so grateful. 

“I am greatly looking forward to working closely with the Steve Morgan Foundation and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, to ensure the people of North Wales have the support which has already been making such a difference to people’s lives in other parts of Wales for 13 years.” 

The Steve Morgan Foundation has provided £4m to design, commission and build the centre in North Wales. This is the second Maggie’s Centre we have supported, following the success of our earlier project to design, commission and build Maggie’s Wirral

Liam Eaglestone, CEO of the Steve Morgan Foundation, said:

“We are delighted to be helping Maggie’s bring its vital cancer support to the people of North Wales, ensuring they will have the warm, welcoming and free expert support of a Maggie’s centre right on their doorstep.”

Glan Clwyd Hospital is within the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) and is home to the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre.

Carol Shillabeer, the Health Board’s CEO, said:

“I am delighted work is starting on Maggie’s centre in North Wales.

“Working closely with the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre, also based at Glan Clwyd Hospital, this new facility will extend and enhance the support we offer to people with cancer and their families.

“I also want to give particular thanks to the Steve Morgan Foundation for its generous funding of what I am sure will be a highly valued facility.”
